Sanja Ivekovic Artist Talk

Over the last four decades, Sanja Ivekovic has developed a pioneering practice that tackles society’s issues of female identity, the politics of power, consumerism and the hypocrisy inherent in society’s collective memory. In the 1970’s Ivekovic, alongside a generation of Yugoslavian artists, questioned the role of art in society. They broke away from galleries and started to use performances and cheap, accessible materials.


Featuring plaster cast masks of women abused, this feministic piece was meant to question the attitude of society to women.
